Odd interior lighting problem??

On my 2000 Boxster S none of the interior lights seem to come on. Even the main light when switched to on.... I checked the fuse and it is fine. The main interior, door lights, front trunk, and rear trunk are not working. All other lights on the car are okay. The microswitches in the doors seem to be okay as the window drop down operations are working. What might I be missing?

I had the same problem with my 2000 boxster s, my lights would only work if the key was in the ignition. Took it to a Porsche dealer and got them to take the car out of transport mode and all lights work as they should now.

Son of a gun, that was it!!! I can't believe it was left in transport mode for 10 years. LOL

Guess this means I need to visit the dealer to have this fixed....

Is there anyone in the SF Bay Area that has a PIWIS that could reset this?
